Clifford Everard Goodman (20 November 1869, at College View, St Philip, Barbados – 1 February 1911 at Belleville, St Michael, Barbados), was a cricketer. A right arm fast bowler, he was educated at The Lodge School, Barbados. He stood at 6 ft 4ins and took 126 wickets at 10.70 in his 15 match first class career. During his short 5 year first class career he was almost always successful and was described as "perhaps the best bowler the West Indies ever had, and a good hitter too."

He played in all 14 Barbados matches from 1891-92 to 1896-97 and was also selected for the combined West Indies against Priestley's side in 1896-1897 taking 9 wickets in the match.

His younger brother Percy was also one of the top West Indian players of his day and toured England in 1900 and 1906. Two other brothers Gerald and Walter also played first class cricket.
